However, the folowing health control measures apply:

* If one has been vaccinated, he/she must present proof of the vaccination status and a declaration attesting to the absence of symptoms of Covid-19 infection and contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19.

* If one is not vaccinated (or vaccinated with a vaccine not recognised by the European Medicines Agency), he/she must present to the transport company and to the border control authorities a certificate of recovery, dated more than 11 days and less than six months or, a negative PCR test dated less than 72 hours before departure.

Meawhile, the French Ambassador to Bahrain Jerome Cochard has expressed his appreciation to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and all government agencies across the Kingdom for implementing effective precautionary measures and promoting vaccination, which remains free of charge for everyone.
